I got caught up on all your blogs. I know I left very little comments and if I did, they were pretty short, but my goal was to just get caught up with what was happening in your lives.
Now to update you on our lives. Christmas was wonderful. It was everything I’ve dreamt it would be except for the fact that I didn’t get to open our little ones gifts because they weren’t old enough to do it themselves yet, lol. The girls seemed to love all their gifts and our families treated them like they’ve been around forever. H and I were both moved to tears several times over the few days. H because of our families generosity and me, because H was just so appreciative of everything. The girls went with a family friend and had professional photos done that they gave us for Christmas in a frame. They were just beautiful. We had 3 different days of family and fun and so much laughing. Til we were crying kind of laughing. It was awesome. The girls fit right in with our nieces and nephews and a great time was had by all!
It’s not all fun and games though and the Christmas break I thought was going to happen is not. There are times (like this morning) that I wish I could just make my pot of coffee and chill out with my book without interruption or constant questions. Parenting is hard and being thrown into it with a fun but sassy 5 yr old isn’t the easiest thing.
I also thought I’d finally start getting to the gym again when break started and I haven’t. I have a training session tomorrow night and once again, I haven’t made it to the gym since the last one. I really need to get back on track because I was doing so well!
I can’t remember if I put this in my password protected post or not but H tried out for the Murder mystery dinner theatre the HS is putting on and got the part of the person who gets murdered. She’s super excited and the play runs Feb 11 and 12 which also happens to be her 18th Birthday. I love that she had the guts to try out so soon after starting at a new school and I think this is a great way for her to meet people and make new friends.
Other than that, things are pretty much business as usual. This break is going to quickly and daycare is about to get super busy in the new year with the addition of another full time kiddo. I hope you are well and had a wonderful holiday!
Lots of Love~Dawn
